A post-doctoral scientific officer position has become available in
the crystallography group in Newcastle. The appointee must have
demonstrated capabilities in solving X-ray crystal structures of
proteins, and to be comfortable using linux for crystallographic
computation. There are two main roles for the appointee to fill:
1. To participate in numerous collaborative research projects within
the lab, requiring the individual to be flexible and organised.
Where the appointee has contributed sufficiently, due credit will be
ensured at the publication stage.
2. To be responsible for maintaining the X-ray facility and to take
the lead on synchrotron trips to Diamond and the ESRF. Prior
knowledge of generator maintenance would be advantageous, but is
not a requirement as training will be provided.
This is a fixed term contract of 3 years duration, with a minimal
starting salary of £27,183 and the post is available immediately.
As this is a key role in the lab, long-term securement of funds for
this post is one of my priorities.
Full details of the post, salary scales, and how to apply will be
available on Monday 27th October on Newcastle University's job
vacancy web page, www.ncl.ac.uk/vacancies, with reference code
Informal enquiries for more information about the post can be made
to me, preferably by email, but please note that full applications
for the post cannot be made to me, but can only be made by following
the instructions on the University's vacancies web pages.
